  1. Had the same issues. SB froze on options screen, and couldn't Alt-Tab out of it, even firing up the task manager couldn't get me out of it. Had to do a full reboot. This is on an MSI GE76 running Windows 11. Culprit would appear to be Nahimic effects. Once I disabled the effects and quit the Nahimic Companion, everything was shiny. Now I just need to relearn everything else in the game, and figure out how to configure my controls 😏
  2. Right, ok But there are still people here with access to Professional version, that takes map requests? I'm fairly confident if I tried preparing the data necessary myself, it'd be utter bollocks in the end, and I don't have access to Professional version anyways. If I get the right DTM/DTED data and ESRI shape files available via Google Disk, is there anyone that can handle that? I understand it can take some time to get something like this done, of course. As I understand it, anything above 60 Degrees latitude has been out of the question due to lack of height data. I can get DTM 10, or even DTM 1 over Norway, far north of 60 Degrees latitude, but I still need to know what "project format" and "compression" to use. I've been trying for USGS DEM project format, but that just gives an error message, saying that the coordinate system is not compatible. So the only option is GeoTIFF, with LZ77, LZW or NO compression. DTM 10 is easy enough, same with DTM 1 for that matter, but as you can probably guess, the size increases. DTM 10 is a 490-500 Mb download, while DTM 1 is 35-40 Gb, for a given area that I was looking at. Definitely doable, but not much of a point if Steel Beasts can't deal with DTM 1. And like mentioned, what would the project format be? Is GeoTIFF ok? Same with compression, what type? LZW, LZ77 or None? The same site as linked to above also provides DTED data, but that's DTED 30, which in my head doesn't sound like it'd rip the skin off the sausage, but what do I know... 🤔 Final question: Is there a limit to how large maps can be prepared? I mean, the limit for SB missions/scenarios is fair enough, but is there a "good practice size" for making the map workable and easier to handle? I read back a bit that 120x120 km was a limit; is that the largest that the map import of SB can handle? Anyone? 🙂
  3. Ok. DTM 10 is available, but there's still a question about project formats and compression. Btw, would DTM 30 be too coarse? Project format has USGS DEM and GeoTIFF as options, although for some reason I get an error message whenever I choose USGS DEM. Compression has NONE, LZW and LZ77 as options. If you go to the dark grey "toolbar" at the top, there's a globe in the upper right hand corner that gives you the option of english language on the page, btw.
  4. So I see that someone asked about a Norwegian map some time ago, and one of the issues was the lack of height data above 60 Degrees latitude. Correct me if I'm wrong. Anyways, while the SRTM data does not cover the higher latitudes, I have found some height data for the northern areas of Norway on a Norwegian website. But, I'm not that well versed in what file formats, data formats and whatnot is needed for usable height models. I would appreciate it if someone that knows what they're doing (ie not me) could have a look at the page and the available formats and options, and give some insight into whether the data is good for use in maps for Steel Beasts Pro PE. The page is from the Norwegian Mapping Authority, and it has both norwegian and english language options (globe in upper right corner on the page). I've already fiddled around with downloads from the site, and it works without any issues. So far I've only tried some small sets, but there's no payment involved and depending on the format choices I make, I get anything from a few Mbs to mane Gbs. But as mentioned, I haven't got a clue whether the formats are usable for map-making. Link to page: https://hoydedata.no/LaserInnsyn/ Any input is much appreciated!
  5. I actually started to worry when I got that priority letter, I didn't see it until after I got back from my Christmas holiday, and thought: "Oh ****, what have I forgotten to pay/sort out now..." Very nice surprise, thank you, not what I've seen done from any other company!
  6. Not much, I'm afraid I took the picture years ago, in the main cavalry base in south-eastern Norway (Trandum), while I was doing the NCO course there. It was painted up for a commercial by the state lottery, or something like that. And of course, I can't find the video right now...
  7. Any chance of getting these made....?
  8. Awesome, thanks for answers! Sounds good, pretty much the only way I can try to recruit some of my friends
  9. Got my ancient 1.14 (...I think it was...) CM stick updated to 1.18 easily enough here, AND got the PE 3.0 license installed on first try. I've ordered a new CM stick with 3.0 license on it, but it hasn't arrived yet, so I thought I'd try to update my existing stick with the 3.0 license. Esim sent a link to the 3.0 license, and that worked out great after the firmware update. Downloading SB torrent as we speak. Looking forward to getting back into it, after waaay too long doing reallife stuff. One question though: I got SB Pro PE back in 2006, and that license still resides on the CM stick, according to the webadmin-utility. Any way to upgrade that to 3.0 as well (I assume that I'll have to pay)? Product code is 11051.
  10. Anyone here into RC tanks? I'm building a Tamiya 1/16th scale Leopard 2 A6 now, on my very limited spare time, and I gotta say its an awesome kit. Big package, heavy kit, lots of options too...some 3rd party as well, like metal tracks and metal idler/roadwheels. Main gun stabilizer and IR Battle system (for use against other Tamiya RC-tanks with same option) is also available as Tamiya options. The kit has incredible detailing, and the parts are quite tough, hull is mostly ABS I think. Gearbox is detailed, and have two 540-type electric motors, one for turning and for forward/reverse. The DMD-unit inside means you don't have to worry about servos; everything is driven by the DMD-unit. The one servo you need is included with the kit. Also, there is a loudspeaker aboard that get fed original engine sound, turret movement sounds etc etc from the DMD-unit. Big and quite expensive for a kit, not really classified as a toy for your average 10-year old kid. Btw, check videos... http://www.tamiya.com/english/products/56020leopard/index.htm Of course there are a few other bigger (and waaaay more expensive) options to this one.... Would love to have one of these as well http://www.mark-1-tank.co.uk/abrams.html#M1A2Abrams
